What the world who have become without gold?
Answers could not be found for platinum
Nor spoken word could be drawn from out for diamond
Even the highly depreciated silver-
To the poor is still uncommon like bronze
Money talks before you get closer to the gems

Money is the language that speaks for all gems
But who controls the language to shiny gold?
I am sure their hearts are as hard as bronze
Blocking our way to precious platinum-
Found in their majestic mansions of silver
Where gates are as unbreakable as diamond

These days good hearts are as scarce as diamond
That deprives us of pure spiritual gems
Where souls are sold in return of silver-
That is too low to the value of gold
Folks are exploited to dig platinum
And the poor get not even the price of bronze

This must be unyielding kingdom of bronze
The devalued metal unlike diamond-
That adorns empresses, and platinum-
Adorning emporors, the heads of gems
All kings and queens in palaces of gold
Exploiting the masses for more silver

The real kingdom is coming where silver-
Will be, to everyone, as common as bronze
The great kingdom whose dust will be of gold
The kingdom of infants dangling diamond-
Like toys, where human spirits will be gems-
Surpassing the glitters of platinum

The world crisscrossed by streets of platinum
Everyone jealousing no-one for silver
Beautiful spirits surpassing all gems
Conquered and crushed be the kingdom of bronze
Where people's worth won't be evaluated in diamond
The Word's Reign trampling over the shiny gold

When the glitters of gold and platinum
And everything that is diamond and silver
And bronze fall, human gems will reign with Christ
